Default Last ride for the General Lee? 'Dukes of Hazzard' streaming future uncertain

Amazon Prime to pull Dukes of Hazzard over current political climate?

Quote:
It looks like those good ol Duke boys are going to be in need of a new home. Since 2018, all seven seasons of CBSs quintessentially 80s series The Dukes of Hazzard have been available to stream on Amazon, first as part of the Prime Video library and currently via IMDb TV, the streaming arm of the much visited website. But a recent report from Vulture suggests that moonshine-running brothers Bo and Luke (played by John Schneider and Tom Wopat) and their cousin Daisy (Catherine Bach) might be facing an eviction notice.

The series is the latest pop culture artifact to face renewed scrutiny in the wake of Black Lives Matter protests inspired by the death of George Floyd, which in turn have inspired Americans to confront the legacy of racial injustice and exclusion in popular entertainment as well as policing. The past few weeks have already seen the cancellation of TV shows like Cops and Live PD and the temporary removal of Gone With the Wind from HBO Max, as well as the discontinuation of famous brands like Aunt Jemima. If The Dukes of Hazzard joins them in exile, its because the show wears its offending symbol on its sleeve or, more accurately, on the roof of Bo and Lukes signature car: a bright orange 1969 Dodge Charger with a Civil War namesake Gen. Robert E. Lee and a Confederate flag emblazoned up top.

Glad I've got the 7 seasons on DVD and the reunion specials on iTunes.

Same here, except I have the reunion movies on dvd as well. Love this show, probably my all time favorite. It's just so much fun!

The complete series bundle is $34.99 on Vudu right now if anyone wants to buy it digitally.

Calling this show racist is one of the stupidest assertions anyone can make. It had more black characters than the entire run of Seinfeld, and the characters had normal roles, not stereotypical ones. This was thanks to the efforts of producer Gy Waldron who was dismayed that the main cast were white, so he cast black people in prominent roles (FBI, Sheriff, etc...)

I'm clinging to my DVD sets because you know this show isn't going to be around with how these trends are shaping up.

I will to get this one, and will look in pawn shops. Have gotten some great deals there. I'm glad I already own the complete series of "Married With Children" and "Sanford & Son" because they could be next.
